Environmental Mission to Stop Hundreds of Plastic Tubs Being Sent to Landfills

Environmental Mission to Stop Hundreds of Plastic Tubs Being Sent to Landfills

Posted: 23rd February 2024

At Queen’s College, we have completed our latest environmental mission to stop hundreds of empty plastic food tubs from Taunton from being sent to landfills.
Once again the school has joined forces with DCW Recycling and Reprocessing (dcw.co.uk), waste management experts working across the South West, to get every tub collected recycled and turned into garden furniture and raise money for two different charities. We are proud to be working in partnership with DCW to help to raise money for both Life Chance Trust – Life Chance and Dartmoor Zoological Society and as the only designated drop-off point in Taunton for this year’s exciting South West of England ‘Recycle & Raise’ campaign.

Life Chance Trust is an award-winning organisation that provides mentoring and life skills training to young people who have experienced trauma. They also provide therapeutic, practical and financial support to young people who have suffered trauma in early childhood. While the Dartmoor Zoo undertakes conservation, breeding and research projects and the care of their animal collection.

Mr Mann, Head of the Faculty of Art, Design, and Food said, “This is a truly fantastic initiative and we thank everyone who dropped off all your unwanted plastic food tubs at Queen’s College for recycling into garden furniture and in turn help our pupils raise money for such important causes. Thank you”.
